Hello Maja fans!!!

It’s Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout featuring the beautiful ”Nyhavn” collection.

A sensational layout that was inspired by that beautiful photo which I found on Pinterest. And, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

detail 1

I used for my background the ”Historical Atmosphere” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”Strolling along the Canal” paper using both sides.

detail 2

I primed the background with white gesso and when it was dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays ”Hydrangea Blue”, ”Baby Blue Eyes Aqua” and ”Danny Zuko’s Denim” to give some color.

detail 4

I heat embossed the ”Sammi’s Swirls” and the ”Corner Gemma’s” chipboards with ”Oakleaf Olive” Lindy’s Stamp Gang embossing powder. The title was treated in the same way. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing.

To finish, I added some bronze micro beads and made some splatters with FW white ink.

Hello my dear friends!!!

Mary here with you today sharing my latest layout using papers from the beautiful ”Vintage Summer Basic” collection.

In this layout I tried to give you a cozy sense using this beautiful photo found on Pinterest, which reminds me relaxed Sundays mornings. There is nothing better than having a hot cup of coffee lying in your comfortable couch. Don’t you think?

But, before I continue I want to give all the proper credits to the photographer.

Close up 1

For my background, I used the ”1903” paper and I made some layers behind my photo with the ”1912”  and the ”1932” papers using both sides of the last one. I also placed some torn pieces from the pages fo an old book.

Close up 2

First, I gave my paper a coat of clear gesso and then I applied some white gesso. When dried, I added some texture with modeling paste and a stencil. Then, I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang mists, ”Cocoa Bean Copper” and ”Sassy Sapphire” with some water to make a watercolor effect.

Close up 3

I heat embossed the title words with ”Byzantine Bronze” and the small border chipboard pieces with ”Cafe au lait”. The chipboards I used are 2crafty and the flowers are Prima Marketing. The metal embellishments are ”Scrap Unlimited” and the flair is ”Cuts2luv”.

Close up 4

As a final touch, I added some mica flakes in ”Henna” and made some splatters with 13arts white gesso.
